Our friends Shawn and Stephanie went out with us last evening for one last birthday fling for me.
We went to Cafe Mulino which is a cute little Italian place in what used to be called The Mead Inn.
We had a great time, and the food was good - - - though NEXT time I shall order something really Italian and not necessarily the "special" of the day.
When I was growing up in this town, "The Mead Inn" was a synonym for elegance. It was the classiest place in town. George Mead, then CEO of Consolidated Papers, had it built so he would have a place to entertain guests of the (his) paper mill.
Needless to say, I never darkened its doors back in those days.
It is no longer called the Mead Inn having become "Hotel Mead & Conference Center."
I was happy to see that it is still a very lovely place.
